    According to the website, it's gonna cost $399 for the 16gb 3Gs, but I still kinda find that funny. Can anyone confirm this?

    Why do you find the price funny? I assume you don't qualify for an upgrade since you recently got a bold...

    That's the early upgrade price. If you have gotten a new subsidized phone from AT&T within the last 18 months you are not eligible for the full upgrade subsidy on the iPhone. They will let you do an early upgrade for a $200 premium. So your options are to wait for the 18 month mark or pay the $399 today.

    So what drove you to switch from the iPhone to the BB, and what is making you want to come back? Just curious.
